What do I need to do to prepare my switches to add IP cameras to the network

I have Cisco Catalyst 3560 switches (X, G, and MB) in my network.  I'm adding Sony SNC-DH120 and SNC-DH140 IP cameras to my network soon.  Do I need to setup QoS?  Do I need to put the cameras on a separate VLAN? Right now I have all IPs on 1 VLAN.  I do have a router (Cisco 3845).

To control the traffic, it would be best to give the camera their own VLAN.  You can then apply QOS to that VLAN so video moves across the network smoothly, but without taking up too much bandwidth.
1) Separate VLAN recommended design solution data,voice,wireless,video,etc
2) QoS generally will not be required if it is used on LAN ..if LAN is choked QoS is required.
